Two doubles pairs make runs in tennis’ conference tourney

Jessica Sehgal, Executive Editor

After a 10-6 season, girls tennis felt confident heading into their csl tournament on Friday Oct. 7. However, after the first round, only two ETHS teams remained in the running. Doubles team Sophie Glantz and Mia Tingley swept Senn 6-0, 6-0, with an exciting progression to the next round. However, they failed to advance past the second round, with a 7-5, 2-6, 3-6 loss to Lane Tech. Contrarily, fourth seed doubles team Maddie Pollard and Linden Wadsworth found themselves in the quarterfinals after receiving a bye for the first round and defeating Lane Tech 6-1, 6-0 in the second. When faced with their next competition, Niles West, Pollard and Wadsworth eventually suffered defeat with a 7-6, 7-5 loss. Despite a senior-heavy team, returning players including freshman Wadsworth and sophomore singles player Maggie Cummins—who lost to the no. 1 seed in the tournament opener—indicate hopeful seasons to follow.
